Francesco Matera, Certified Instructor

I approached the world of martial arts in 1987, studying Karate for 6 years, then Kung Fu (Wing Chun, Hung Gar). In 1997 I started learning Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan with M° Giuseppe Turturo and in 1999 I became a Member of IYSTCCA. I participated to several international seminars held in Europe by M°Yang Zhen Duo and by M°Yang Jun. In 2002 I attained the 3rd rank taking part in the 2nd Traditional Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan’s International Tournament held in Taiyuan, Shanxi. In 2002 I also started teaching Tai Chi Chuan Traditional Yang Style in Milano. In 2004 I went back to China for further studies with M° Yang Bin. In 2008 I set out for a long stay in Redmond, to attend classes with M° Yang Jun, and passed the examination for the 4th rank.
From 2009 I teach in Varese and province.

Practicing seriously for all these years I developed a strong belief in this discipline. I am convinced that this knowledge is a great gift in life, for both health and spirit; and I am positive that helping other people to get to know Tai Chi Chuan is the best way to share this gift.
